    It is NOT dtek old vs. dtek new. The dtek block was tested TWICE because pHaestus had problems with the heat source. Both blocks are mine and I assure you there is only 1 dtek block tested.

    I was actually suprised how closely they compared to each other. I have an original too nik, one thing struck me as being different than yours. The barbs on mine seem to be much thinner walled, giving a larger ID. I kinda thought cathar had sourced em like that or he had possibly done some type of tuning. Maybe they are just different brands that he's used.

    peace.

    after reading that, I can still say I'm very happy with my Dtek WW (poly-top, plastic barbs)

    Indeed. I switched barb brands about 1/3rd of the way through the number of blocks that I made. The newer barbs had thinner walls, were more open, and quite a deal lighter, the obvious benefit here being that it lowered the block's weight. I personally thought that the newer barbs looked nicer too.

    I've stuck with that brand since, although they are rather hard to source with a 12 week lead time on orders.
